This started a few days ago when Trump gave ABC reporter Ashleigh Banfield an interview on Trump Force One discussing the possibility of entering the 2012 campaign for President. His mention of the Obama’s birth certificate was a small part of the interview.
We all know how that one interview has exploded as evidenced by the wacko intolerant ladies on The View, all of whom had absolutely no idea of what they were talking about.
You see the real reason Obama is ineligible to be POTUS is because when Obama was born he father was a British subject. Obama was born a BRITISH CITIZEN. Natural born citizenship takes place when person is born; it cannot be conferred or acquired by other means.
Obama’s birth certificate is a secondary issue. It has been used to create a circus atmosphere and a convenient verbal club used against anyone pointing out the the Emperor has no clothes, as it were!
The birth certificate issue has been used as a distraction in the very same way a magician causes you to look at his right hand while the slight of hand is taking place with his left hand.
To hear Chris Matthews tell it, Donald Trump is a Birther. True to form, he can’t help himself. Yes, Matthews continues to use that inane pejorative term hoping to deflect the truth about Obama. This time he used it against the The Donald. “He’s gone primate,” whines Tingles.
Matthews knows the truth so do numerous members of Congress and a host of others. Natural born citizenship (one of 5 types of citizenship mentioned in the Constitution) requires both parents are citizens. That’s why he (and others on cable and in the MSM) continue to bring up the birth announcements as their only source of “proof.”
Let me point out that a birth announcement in a newspaper is not proof of anything especially Natural Born Citizenship; nor is a photograph or the phony birth certificate on the Internet that lists Obama’s race as African!
There really are a host of other disqualifiers for Obama that impact on his ineligibility, his British father being the primary one. Team Obama can’t past that one so they yell, “Birther, racist, crazy person!”
Here’s something to consider. No one screws with The Donald. Yelling “Birther” at him in an attempt to blunt or diminish him is an exercise in futility. In fact, Trump’s discussion brings a legitimacy to the issue.
Now, the proverbial ball is in Trump’s court. Time will tell if all of this has been for self promotion, as his critics charge, of if he genuinely wants to put an end to the Obama “legitimate to serve?” queries.
Here’s the test. The next time Donald Trump mentions Obama’s ineligibility will he bring up Obama’s British father or will be continue helping the Team Obama magicians with their birth certificate nonsense?
